Let’s face it: no matter how many times we’re told french fries are bad for us, the fact remains that they are deliciously addicting. Kids are especially fond of the salty side-dish, but when you get right to it these treats are certainly not the healthiest choice.
Luckily, there’s a delicious replacement that not only packs a punch of flavor, but is also filled with nutrients. Sweet potatoes (not to be confused with yams, which are not nearly as nutritional) have a low glycemic index and are a wonderful source of vitamins A, B6 and C. But that’s not all! Potassium (great for those of you who aren’t crazy about bananas), fiber, manganese, copper and iron are all found in just one sweet potato.
Sweet potato fries are a personal favorite of mine–I make them at home as often as I can! Here is a great oven-baked recipe that the entire family will love…!
